Performing for the M.Abramović Institute at the first Art Biennale of Bangkok, Thailand, 18/10/2018 - 11/11/2018.

Despina Zacharopoulou’s Protreptic (in Greek: προτρεπτικός [protreptikos], meaning: that which urges someone towards change) is a 3-week long durational performance which aims to re-visit, re-think and re-activate philosophy as a way of life, within the sociopolitical landscape of Bangkok, right here and right now.


The artist invites the audience to enter into an encounter with her, after a series of protocols is established and consent is explicitly given. Questions revolving around (the thickness of) boundaries, governmentality, preciousness, use and expenditure are investigated, especially in regards to Thailand’s contemporary Capital.
